Enter the painter's loving intimacy and discover the true name of "the Italian lady", the young Delacroix's burning secret passion.

"Unless we assume that civilization suddenly stops, no one can say that our language will not undergo further processing." To predict these changes, Leon Bollack offers in 1903, more than a "language astrology," a comprehensive study of the "forces that will shape the future constitution of the French language" and "probable result".
